One of the most poignant moments in my business career was when I was working to build up an international consulting service.
As part of this, I was trying to make connections with technology companies across the world. To do this, I would often travel to other cities and spend time at these different companies.
Despite any type of success gained, there is always a period (even if it’s only minutes) where you start wondering if it is worth all the effort that you are putting into this job.
One day after one such trip, something strange happened to me while socializing with coworkers in our hotel room for dinner: The weight on my shoulders fell off and all the anxiety disappeared.
The reason for this was that at that moment, I was not worried about doing anything else in my business.
It didn’t matter if I would succeed or not, because there wasn’t anything else to worry about. There was nothing left for me to do except have dinner with colleagues.
Over time, I began studying this feeling and found it to be one of the most liberating things in life.
This is what gave rise to an insight that will forever change how you look at business: We all have a finite amount of “To Do” items that we have on our plate at any given time—be it with our work, family, relationships or daily tasks.
Here Riddim Saunter are some Aha features about Business :
1. You can schedule events and meetings ahead of time –
Giving you more time to work on your business when the need arises.
2. Great networking opportunities –
When you are in front of people, It’s easier to convert them into customers or investors.
3. You are invested in the long term success of your client –
There is no “time” that can be wasted on ups and downs through a client’s life cycle of interest and interest wanes over time – meaning that over time, pitching and getting a client signed up will get less and less value for the investment that you put in them and their money.
4. You gain control over your life –
Most people do not like to be in control of their lives and let’s face it, most people don’t like doing business in general.
Sure, we all need to do things we don’t want to do, but with business this is very different and the fact that you create your own schedule and destiny in that sense is a huge advantage:
As long as you manage yourself properly, you are able to minimize the amount of negative events that will affect your business processes.
5. You can get paid for what you love –
Many people have a passion for something they are good at doing—and this passion often translates into being successful at their craft professionally.
If you are able to turn your passion into a business, you won’t have to work a day in your life. That is the ultimate goal of any business owner.
6. You can monetize your knowledge –
This is a big one: How much do you know about a particular topic, a specific subject? I bet it’s more than you think.
You know things other people don’t, and because of that fact, you can make money from what you know by sharing your knowledge via something like an ebook, blog or newsletter.
7. Your idea becomes immortal –
Once the world knows about your idea, it literally has no expiration date.
Go ahead and find any little idea that’s older than 10 years old—I’ll wait right here while you do that… (and don’t even get me started on ideas older than 100 years…)
8. You can just start a business without knowing how to run a business –
You don’t have to be an expert in every field or have a network of contacts just to start a business.
You can just learn as you go, and build your own skill set based on what you need it to be as you grow.
9. You gain financial freedom –
The only money you need as a business owner is the money that comes from your hard work and creativity—as long as you have those two things working for you, money will always follow.
10. Freedom from the office –
People who work for other people often live by the rules of their respective companies.
If their company closes, they lose their job. If they can’t make it to work because of car trouble or something else out of the blue, they risk losing their job.
When you own your own business, not only are you able to set your own hours (instead of having hours dictated to you) but if you need time off, then that’s fine because it’s not like there is someone standing over you telling you that you can’t take off…
